Research Synopsis

I am broadly interested in low-dimensional topology, representation theory, and their interactions. My current work aims to prove structural results concerning homological and quantum invariants of knots and links, with an eye towards topological applications. I am also interested in various related structures, for example, categorified quantum groups, quantum invariants of 3-manifolds, skein modules, and in the homological algebra underlying their study.
